Hear hear! Nationality doesn't matter. We're talking about technical merit
of things here. Let's keep race, creed, religion, colour out of this.

Don't mention SPEWS. SPEWS is famous for blocking large non-USA ISPs at
the drop of a hat, while large USA spam-support ISPs get away with murder.
Why? Because Spews is either run by someone in the USA or knows that if
they started applying the same principals to everyone, more and more large
USA ISPs will be blocked completely, and less and less people will use
SPEWS. Thus SPEWS has double-standards in this regard.

I prefer ones that have the same standard, regardless of what country you
are in. Many many block lists are available... www.spamcop.net... or just
check out one of the best Block List comparisons yourself at:

Don't tell SPEWS and NANAE that... from the way they talk and act, every
spammer must be in China, Korea, Taiwan, and everywhere else EXCEPT the

In the above block list comparison webpage, I believe it is listed there?
